Got bored so I figured 'what the hell?' Need some help finishing it though. And I'm already well aware that this is nowhere close to JD's high school girls list.
So if T14's were athletes they would be the following:
Yale: Michael Phelps. Simply the best in his field and while those familiar with all sports realize he dominates his sport more, the average person will think that while great, he is no Tiger.
Alternate Yale: Lance Armstrong. Proved he was the best and doesn't need to compete anymore.
Harvard: Tiger Woods. You would be hard pressed to find someone who wasnít familiar with him and hence many people not familiar with lesser known sports (law school) will think he is the best.
Columbia: Alex Rodriguez. Plays on the biggest stage there is and while one of the best, as of now it is generally recognized that there were others better.
NYU: Derek Jeter. Plays right next to A-Rod in that big city, but letís face it, isnít quite as good.
Penn: Bo Jackson. Great overall athlete, but we canít help but think that he chose the wrong sport to play full-time. Would have been better served staying on the football field (Wharton).
Alternate Penn: Barry Bonds. Yes heís up there with the greats, but is it because of artificial inflation?
Boalt: Are there any dominant surfers?
Duke: Vladimir Guerrero while on the Expos. 5-tool player that has it all, but plays in a place where people donít really want to go.
Northwestern: Whoever leads the senior PGA tour.
Cornell: Scottie Pippen. Very good player, but take him off of those dominant Bull teams (Ivies) and suddenly his status plummets.
**- Does not reflect the views of this poster, but rather a list based off the consensus of these boards. I actually like some of the schools I take shots at and hope to attend one.
